Overdue tribute to radio's finest writer
21 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In 1945 SIXTY million people tuned in to hear one radio program, out of a US population then of about 130 million. It was "On a Note of Triumph" by Norman Corwin..the same title as this year's Oscar winner for documentary films. This tribute is well done, including comments from Walter Cronkhite and Robert Altman, among others..and interviews with the 95 year old Corwin who is still teaching.

I have 2 objections to the film (1) the producers failed to interview Corwin's number one fan..moi; (2) not enough people will see it and realize that the things Corwin hoped we had learned from WW2 we still have not learned today. Perhaps if enough people see this new tribute, we will learn--at last.
